Shigeru Ban BookShigeru Ban is renowned for his inventive and courageous architecture, which spans from museums to simple huts. While the Pritzker Prize-winning architect is often given kudos for his work in developing emergency shelters and using low-impact materials like paper, that humble work is often given second fiddle to his more grandiose designs, like the newly opened Aspen Art Museum. The Museum turned the attention it received on its head by publishing Humanitarian Architecture; the most thorough book available on Ban’s emergency shelters. His work in emergency response design and development is such a core part of his oeuvre, it would be difficult to understand or appreciate his more high-profile projects without it. Read on past the jump for our full review.
